After the work environment internship, the student will have the basic knowledge of work,
working environment and working community in his/her own field. The student will be able
to apply the knowledge and skills acquired during the course of studies to work in his/her
own field.


The student obtains a (summer) job from the company, works there as a paid employee,
requests for a certificate of employment and applies for the approval of the work as an
internship for the Master’s degree. Full-time employment relationships of at least four weeks
can be approved as internships. The completion of the Master’s thesis is not accepted as an
internship. An employment relationship preceeding the studies can be approved as an
internship, provided that it has not been accepted and included in any other previous degree.
